Database Template Library
The Database Template Library makes ODBC recordsets look just like STL containers. Users move through containers using standard STL iterators, and if they insert(), erase(), or replace() records in the containers, changes are automatically committed to the database. Since 'dtl' complies with STL iterator and container standards, users can plug abstractions into a range of STL algorithms for data storage, searching, and manipulation. The C++ reflection mechanism used to bind to database tables lets users add generic indexing and lookup properties to the containers without requiring special code. Since the code takes full advantage of the template mechanism, 'dtl' adds minimal overhead (compared with using raw ODBC calls).
